A flavorful and aromatic rub of garlic, lemon peel, rosemary, and sage becomes a delicious crust for pork chops cooked on the grill. Cook the chops over medium heat, to ensure that the garlic doesn't burn and become bitter. Pull them off as soon as they're done and let them rest for five minutes before serving. Oven-roasted potatoes and a garden-fresh vegetable salad would be great alongside the tasty chops.

Recipe Ingredients for Lemon-Herb rubbed Pork Chops

4 teaspoons minced garlic (about 8 cloves)
1 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 pork loin chops, cut 1-1/4 inches thick

Recipe Directions for Lemon-Herb rubbed Pork Chops

  1. For rub, combine the garlic, lemon peel, rosemary, salt, sage, and pepper. Trim fat from meat. Rub mixture onto both sides of each pork chop.

  2. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan in a grill that has a cover. Test for medium heat above pan. Place chops on grill rack directly over the pan. Cover and grill, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of a chop registers 160 degrees F and juices run clear (35 to 40 minutes).

  3. For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium and adjust for indirect cooking. Place chops on grill rack; and grill as above. Makes 4 servings.
